Do you have the system restore disks because that might be the only fix ?

STOP: 0x0000000024 that is the error message I am receiving and can't seem to get past the screen that gives you the option to start in safe mode


if this happens when starting to boot to Windows, try last known-good config. When system is restarting, tap F8 a couple of times to get to the Advanced Options menu where Safe Mode is also listed. Select Last Known-Good Configuration if available and press Enter. If this does not work, try selecting Safe Mode. If you can get to Safe Mode, you can try System Restore to a previous restore point available when your system is working properly. If none of the things work, try Windows repair or reinstall. Make sure to try to backup data if you can before doing any reinstall or repair.

Laptop compaq presario 1516 does not finish booting. It keeps hanedg on the desktop background theme, it doesn't show any shortcut icons, not even the Start bar, point moves with the mouse, but nothing...


Okay try this when you turn on your laptop.
push F5 you will get the safe mode menu.
Use the Last known good configuration.
This should fix it.
Good Luck and Happy Computing

I have compaq pc presario c300 i cant open windows meaning when i start up my laptop the xp window is just come n go faster (popUp)


When you boot up press F8 function key and Windows will give a list of boot options, select Last Known Good Configuration and hopefully Windows will start up correctly. If not boot up again, press F8 and select Safe Mode and Windows should boot up in standard VGA display mode.
If this doesn't work you need the Compac restore CD disk that came with your laptop. Boot up with this CD to restore your laptop, you most likely will lose data.

My Compaq Presario V2000 will not start.


Ok, this makes sense. If this was a legit dvd, then it most likely had extra content on it (like wallpaper, sounds, etc) that installed something that crashed a driver.  If it wasn't legit, then the "player" that was used to play the movie installed something that crashed a driver.
If you can. I would reinstall some drivers to start.  Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" option?
Then if reinstalling drivers doesn't work, I would just restore the Windows OS.  But remember to BACKUP YOUR FILES.....once you restore it will be erased.
That compaq is a good machine unless you really want another PC this is fixable.

Windows Vista system restore keeps running (8hrs)


Press F8 as the laptop boots up, instead of selecting boot in Safe Mode, select Last Good Known Configuration.
With luck it will return to normal.

I want to install xp on existing vista,also wanted to remove vista on hp dv2000 labtop


If Vista it is working well on Safe Mode, you have to check it out what is going wrong there instead of downgrade the system to XP.

Remember: Which was the last program that you've installed?

When was the last time that the system started normally?

You can try uninstalling the last programs

Also clean the computer and be sure that your pc is not virus or spyware infected.
